Question to y'all who follow me and have read some of my writing:

Who'd be willing do support me via Patreon or other similar (Ko-fi, Liberapay) if I manage to write an article of note on a monthly basis?

Anything from $1 and up / month.

Mastodon does no longer spark joy. You’ve felt it, I’ve felt it.

Now it’s time to recognize what Mastodon has given us, but leave it behind. Mastodon has brought us a community and friends we did not have before. We’ve connected across worlds and fallen in love, we’ve experienced heart ache, and loss.

Today, we thank you Mastodon for everything we’ve had, and everything you’ve given. We will leave you here.

My goals are several fold.
1. Keep writing all exams/essays for uni
2. Do well on my Creative writing Project (also uni), which will be poetry (bi-weekly publishing, maybe)
3. Write more blog posts about things that comes to mind

Did you know that when you buy a Bundle through my link you can adjust where the money goes?

Want to give the bigger part to charity? You can do that!
Want to give more money to the devs? You cna do that too!
Wanna give it all to me? You can \o/

They've hidden it behind this toggle:
"Choose where your money goes >"

I noticed that a lot of people on Mastodon are open source folks, so I wanted to share this article. It was written with blind people in mind, but I think it could help developers feel where we're coming from, why we hold on to closed source operating systems and software, and I did give ways blind people could help make software more usable for us. devinprater.github.io/open-sou #opensource #accessibility #linux

I'm so grateful to live with the people I live with.

We're taking turns to take care of each other during these trying times, and it's such a loving and caring dynamic to experience and see.

I think that I could do with a new eBook reader. Is there a non-Kindle device that I should consider?

I need it to be able to do the following:
* Have a backlight
* Have an E-paper screen
* Ability to read PDF's
* Have some sort of highlighting. Bonus points if I can just draw highlighting on the screen with a finger or a stylus and if I can search or list all the passages that I've highlighted so that I can stick them into Anki for textbooks and that.

Any recommendations?

By the way, Risk of Rain 2 is free from now until the 6th!! Go check it out! And play multiplayer with me or something

I love how people have tried to retcon the "it's easier for a camel to get through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to get into heaven" line from the bible as like "oh no no no you see back then a 'camel' and 'eye of the needle' meant something different!"

Meanwhile, Mac users should immediately remove the #Zoom app again as they have a full root take-over risks, plus invisible webcam audio/video leak on their system.

Again.

at this point wikipedia should just rename "personal life" to the "are they gay" section
